Newland Court residents put question to Brent Council


 I would like to speak at the next council meeting on Wednesday 21st September regarding Brent Council's proposal to build 7 new homes opposite existing flats at Newland Court. My question will be directed at Cllr Promise Knight  (Member for housing homelessness and renters security), Cllr Shama Tatler (Member for regeneration and planning) and Cllr Neil Nerva (Member for public health and adult social care) on whether they have any concerns and have thought about how this could have a huge impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the existing residents if this proposal were to go ahead.


With crippling inflation and energy prices which are already affecting mainly elderly pensioners, those on benefits and on low income! These residents make up a large percentage at Newland Court who are so worried and concerned and have signed a petition and are totally opposed to Brent Council’s proposal to build 7 new town houses opposite the existing flats at Newland Court. 


Is Brent Council still prepared to go ahead with this proposal at the expense of the health and mental well being of the existing residents who are already at breaking point as it is?  

Yours sincerely, 

Marc Etukudo.

That is a very good question, Marc.

Residents at many Brent Council housing sites where infill schemes are planned will be glad that you've asked it, and very interested in the answers you receive from Cabinet members.
